Dapitan Literary Folio


The Flame, aside from serving as a stronghold in maintaining a reliable journalistic tradition of liberal and fearless reportage, annually celebrates the artistic and literary prowess of the Artlet community by inviting them to submit their works for Dapitan.

Dapitan is a literary folio made through the compilation of selected contributions from the Artlet community. It has kept vigil throughout the years of the Faculty’s existence in maintaining ablaze the Promethean fire of creative inspiration. This is part of the publication’s duty in honoring the altar of the giants, its family of literati predecessors upon whose shoulders the Flame rests.

Dapitan: Hintayan

Two years passed and we still remain within the pandemic’s grasp. This leaves us in a state of limbo or Hintayan as we await for something to happen or someone to appear. Dapitan 2022: Hintayan will unfold the Artlet community’s different accounts of their waiting experiences. Furthermore, the theme may also present people’s exhaustion from the repetitive process of waiting, especially when everything seems stagnant throughout time.
